Provide a strong, integrated security solution

Issue 7 2022 Residential Estate (Industry)

The biggest appeal of estate life is the security on offer. Facilities with electric fences, camera surveillance, access-controlled entrances and security guards, together with a high sense of community, provide a strong sense of security.

But is estate living safer? Several large and seemingly highly secure estates experience burglary and robberies even when well equipped with the ultimate security technology. What is really missing today is situational awareness of security derived by matching and combining all the tools included in a security system into a single dashboard. This is exactly what Arteco can provide:

Through the Omnia VMS, Arteco offers a unique, intuitive and friendly interface that focuses on events to centralise all the security alarms. For estates, integrating multiple services within one platform provides many benefits. Not only does it allow for fast, effective responses to any security event, but it also enables operators to efficiently manage other estate operations from one platform, creating a streamlined, functional and safe environment for residents, employees and visitors.

Omnia Hybrid Cloud is the best solution for a residential estate. It is a cloud-managed solution that eases the management of devices and camera licences through a web platform that requires one thing only: an Internet connection. It is sold as a service, so you don’t have to invest a huge amount of money. It costs a monthly fee that includes the system startup, updates, support and periodic check-up provided by Arteco.

Device integration

Omnia, the Arteco VMS, integrates the most popular brands of access control and building automation, besides providing custom-made integrations to fit the security system you already use.

Omnia VCA is the video analytics software that processes video streams and contemporarily detects and classifies every object that appears on the screen.

Omnia LPR is the Arteco group of solutions for licence plate reading applicable to access control, crime prevention and control of territory, employee time/attendance monitoring and many others.

Omnia Insight is the Omnia add-on that classifies and processes data collected from the system to produce intuitive and easy-to-interpret diagrams on the functioning of the security system. It is an effective tool for managers and maintenance staff to better understand the status of the integrated devices and to analyse how operators work.
